Thought I was going through menopause

Stock Photo credit: pkavitha1I am 45 years old and just found out I am pregnant this is my second pregnancy and I thought I was going through menopause, it wasn't menopause I was experiencing - I was pregnant.

At first I was very scared since I had bleed twice. I have a 8 year old daughter and 5 year old son.

I was 40 1/2 years old when I had him, easy pregnancy no complications and he was a healthy baby.

I am now divorced - the father of my baby wants me to have an abortion, however, abortion is not for me.

I bled again last week and on Monday all was well.

I am getting very excited, however, being only 7 weeks pregnant I am still scared.

TODAY'S BOOK SUGGESTION:
Surprise Child: Finding Hope in Unexpected Pregnancy, by Leslie Leyland Fields. Publisher: WaterBrook Press (February 21, 2006)Surprise Child: Finding Hope in Unexpected Pregnancy
by Leslie Leyland Fields

-- Unplanned pregnancies happen to women in every season of life: the newly married, the never-married, the empty-nester, the teenager, the overworked mother, the career woman.
Yet we rarely talk about how lonely and confusing this experience can be.


In Surprise Child, Leslie Leyland Fields, who experienced two unplanned pregnancies in her forties, lyrically weaves her own story with the stories of other women who understand the isolation you face as expectations and plans are turned upside down to make room for a child.


“Each year, more than three million women discover themselves pregnant–at a hard time, the wrong time, at a difficult place in their lives. I am one of those women.…”


Together, these women walk with you month-by-month through the physical and emotional stages of pregnancy, voicing with startling honesty their own anxieties and struggles. Here you will find the companionship and hope you need to journey toward new life.

About Catherine: I am mom to three grown sons, two grandchildren and two rescue dogs. After years of raising my boys as a single mom, I remarried a wonderful man who had never had a child of his own. Unexpectedly, I found myself pregnant at 49!
Sadly we lost that precious baby at 8 weeks, and decided to try again. Five more losses, turned down for donor egg, foster care and adoption due to my age and losses - we have accepted that there will be no more babies in our house.
